Learning from a football game

“You can’t score a goal if you don’t take a shot.”
-A soccer quote

I’m not a football fan, but I’ve learnt few things from this enthralling sport over the years.

A football field can be compared to a life stage. Your team consists of your family, friends, and supporters, while your opponents are mainly strangers lurking around to challenge you (teachers, employers, haters, government agencies, et cetera). You can’t avoid your opponents, neither can they avoid you. That’s why a choice has to be made, the choice to win or lose.

Winning or Losing is a choice made long before the commencement of every match. These choices are made through rigorous trainings, disciplinary acts, pain-endurance, discomfort, and most importantly, faith. Faith is important::: to receive, start by believing. Regardless of how fierce and skillful your opponents might be, FAITH can WIN. But don’t forget, “faith without work is dead.”

In the process of playing, there would be warnings, injuries, dismissals, fights, arguments, misunderstandings, confusion, disharmony, and so on. All these are bound to happen, they are normal, it only becomes abnormal the moment they start controlling you. Don’t just quit in the middle of your journey, you are already in pain, persevere until your aim is achieved. No one cuts off his hand because of a bruise, they nurture the wound until it heals. Learn to contain and absorb oppositions, they are only trying to distract you from attaining your goals.

Always remember that, losing a match is noting but a lesson, learn from it and keep playing. Every successful team started out as a failure.

Don’t quit in the middle of a match, always play till the end.
Victory Awaits You!

Learning from our Dear Animals


Observation:
The flight of a bird is not determined by the colour or size of its wings, it was predestined by the creator.
The bird with the most colorful wing is actually a duck (Mandarin Duck), and we all know that ducks are mostly aquatic birds, spending most of their time atop water.
The bird with largest wings is an ostrich; surprisingly their wings are not even meant for flying.

Moral:
Simply because it’s called a bird doesn’t mean it can fly. Just as birds vary in their areas of personal capabilities, so do we humans vary from each other. A parrot can’t fly as high as an eagle, but yet the parrot posses something phenomenal, the ability to talk.

Refined Moral:
Don’t focus on what you can’t do, focus on your responsibility, focus on your goal, focus on what God has appointed you to do. A Lion can’t be jealous of an eagle because of its inability to fly, if that be the case why should we as humans be jealous of what we are not destined by God to do.
A doctor needs the help of an Accountant for the safe keeping of his money/assets, tomorrow the Accountant will need the help of a doctor for an health issue.

Redefined Moral:
“Someone somewhere is looking for what you have to offer.”

Purpose

 

The light is of no value if darkness isn’t present

The food is of no importance if the stomach isn’t empty

A doctor is of no need if sickness doesn’t persist

All these are literal, but it could as well be metaphorical.

You and I are of no importance to this world, if challenges, problems, chaos, et cetera, are not present.

We are created to be a solution, that’s why we all have a purpose.

“Purpose is of no need if human beings are nonexistent.”

Fact: We exist!
Requirement: Achieve your purpose
